America Breaking News: Swiss Banks Can Share Data With US on Bern's Say-so

Switzerland's latest bank fix to end its bitter tangle with US tax authorities should do the trick.Bern has, as expected, conjured up a way of getting around the Swiss lower house's resounding rejection of a law that would have enabled banks to release limited information to US tax authorities. American officials said the Obama administration has been told by Egyptian military leaders that they are not interested in long-term rule following their toppling of President Mohammed Morsi. A government of civilian technocrats has been appointed to temporarily run the country in an apparent bid to forestall potential U.S. sanctions. Florida Department of Law Enforcement DNA expert Anthony Gorgone stated that Trayvon Martin's DNA was not found on the grip of George Zimmerman's gun, and Zimmerman's DNA was not found under the unarmed teen's fingernails. Prosecutors hope the testimony will help refute Zimmerman's claim of self-defense. The neighborhood-watch volunteer has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and says he shot the 17-year-old in the chest to protect himself as Martin reached for his firearm during a fight.
